Illustrator :: CS6 - Crashes When Applying Drop Shadow?

Dec 10, 2012

I am currently working on a mac mini with OS X 10.8.2 and version CS6 of Illustrator.
My problem is that everytime I try to preview or apply a drop shadow effect (Effects > Stylize > Drop Shadow...) it freezes.
I have done a lot of things to try and resolve this issue including quiting and restarting Illustrator. Restarting the computer. Reinstalling illustrator, which ended up being a temporary fix. I have a screen shot of the program of when I clicked on the Preview box (just insert the colorful spining wheel of death).

Photoshop :: Applying Effects To Text

Dec 28, 2004

Photoshop CS. I am using it to print out my wedding invitations and am having a problem.

I printed out a majority of them a few months back and used the font 'poor richard' with the effect 'glowing edges' and it worked perfectly for the look I was going for. Now, when I try the same, the color of the text changes to black as soon as I apply the effect.

Revit :: 2012 Freezes And Crashes When Applying Materials To Wall Types?

Jun 23, 2012

This is the first time I experience a major problem with Revit 2012. I created a duplicate of an 8" concrete masonry wall for my student project. Then I selected the Edit option in the Structure to change the rendered material to concrete masonry. Suddenly the program freezes and crashes. A window pops up stating that Windows has detected a problem with Revit and must shut the program down. I've everything since my last save. As of now, I recreated a duplicate of the masonry wall I need and started drawing some of the walls for my project but I'm afraid to experiment with other materials. Background Information about my computer: I downloadeda free version of  Revit 2012 student software to practice at home. I have Windows 7 64-bit, 6GB of Ram and Intel (R) Core i7 2.20GHz...(I checked all the software requirements before downloading the correct version of Revit 2012)
Do I have to uninstall the program and reinstall it again? Would the problem go away?

AutoDesk Smoke :: 2013 Ext1 Crashes While Applying Axis Effect

Sep 10, 2013

I have a problem everytime i apply the axis effect on a clip in the timeline. What happens is that smoke starts loading the effect, but  hangs there, and after a while a message comes up saying that due to a software error smoke must close. But the only way to close it, is only if i do force quit process through terminal. Everything else works really well though, besides this specific issue with axis effect. This by the way didn't happen with Smoke 2013 SP2, maybe a hardware compatibility issue?
here is the smoke log file from console:

Sep 09 20:33:33 : No shader unit for shader (null).
Sep 09 20:33:33 : Assertion failed: (_curUnit), function shaderUnit* shaderUnits::getCurrentUnit() const, file develop/src/libcoreGraphics/shaderMgr.C, line 378.
Sep 09 20:33:33 : Application: smoke 2013.2.53 x86_64
Sep 09 20:33:33 : Pid: 3023
Sep 09 20:33:34 : Uninitialising thread manager.

The footage that i'm using is SD PAL, in DV format (.mov) files, captured through firewire through Premiere CS6. Is it a problem of the footage? GPU? or am i missing something? 

My computer specs are (i'm on a hackintosh for now...):

Smoke 2013 ext1 (Eduactional version)
Snow Leopard 10.6.8
Intel Quad Core Q9300

System is installed on a 500GB SATA drive , and media storage folder of smoke is placed on a 150GB Raptor disk.

Photoshop :: Applying Filters In After Effects Layers?

Jul 14, 2012

Is it possible applying those photoshop filters into After effects layers? I thought the filter worked like layers, so when I import the photoshop files to AE I could drag the filter and apply it on a movie layer! I didn't work! Is it possible?

PS: I'm using Production premium CS5.5!

VideoStudio :: Applying Transition Effects To Just Overlay Track?

Mar 17, 2013

I thought this would be fixed with version 6 but I guess it isn't or maybe I'm still just doing it wrong. How do you apply a transition effect to just the overlay track. For instance I want to apply dissolve to an animated gif that I'm using in my overlay track but when I do it gets applied to everything and even the primary track blacks out and then dissolves back in. So frustrating. I switched over to final cut pro because of this but love the ease of use of VSP so I bought version 6 hoping this issue had been fixed.

Photoshop :: Applying Layer Effects To Pen Drawn Shapes?

Jan 25, 2005

Let's start with a blank canvas. I draw a straight line down one side of my image using the pen tool (not freeform). It creates the line. I Ctrl/Click away from it to complete the path.

Now I want to add some layer effects to this pen line and nothing happens ................ Can anyone shed any light on why this might be happening?

Photoshop :: Applying Effects To Multiple Layers Simultaneously

Jan 8, 2008

I'm working on an image, and I need it to say "The Wedding of Jane Smith."

I have 4 different text layers showing up, and they're all visible. (a real small "the," a much larger "Wedding," a small "of," and a large "Jane Smith.") I like to have the different words on separate text layers so I can move them around and lay them out the way I like.

I got to the point where I wanted to apply blending effects to the text (drop shadow, bevel, whatever). Now, since I have 4 different text layers, what I'd normally do is merge them into one rasterized layer and then do my effects. But I'm wondering if there is a better, more non-destructive way.

I do video graphic design at my job, working with a video editor, and it would be extremely convenient if I could apply effects to multiple text layers without first rasterizing and merging the layers. i.e. when my boss or the client is looking over my shoulder, and I can show him what the text looks like with the blending FX without having to commit to the text placement/size by rasterizing/merging.

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X5 :: Applying Effects To 48bit Images

Jul 3, 2013

Knowing that X5 won't apply effects to 48bit images unless I convert them to 24bit first, If I apply a mask first over to the 48bit image, then apply an effect to that, will this work? or do I still need to convert my image to 24bit?

After Effects :: No Smoother Output When Applying AA And Motion Blur At Render Time?

Aug 31, 2013

I'm rendering at 1920x1080HD 25fps. Used the expression found on numerous threads including this one to generate whole number pixel shifts per frame.
t = time;fr = t/thisComp.frameDuration;x = value [0];s = 4; //Speed in pixels per frame [x, fr*s]

I generated the text and images in InDesign and exported as a PDF. Imported PDF into AE. Have tried a few whole number values for s including 4 and still getting judder.
Generated to H264 and Apple Pro Res codecs doesn't seem to make much difference to judder.Here is my AE project with PDF. Here is output as H264 (40MB).
Also included a Quartz Composer file .where I created the same whole number pixel movement as AE but rendering it out in Quartz Crystal I get different judder but no better. Quartz Composer previews in real time and Quartz Crystal renders same project that took some 16min+ in AE in about 30 seconds. But no smoother output — even when applying AA and Motion Blur at render time.

Any video encoder where I can down-sample say a 75 fps render to 25 fps with frame blending? Does Apple's Compressor do frame blending? What about some other app that I can get this out smoothly from. I have FCP installed but have never done a title in it either.
Since my Dell only has 60Hz at full native res (2560x1440) I set it to 1080p and selected 50Hz to see if that effected anything but it makes absolutely no difference to playback smoothness.

Photoshop :: Trouble Applying Color/layer Effects To An Image With Transparent Background.

Jul 30, 2005

I'm in the process of prepping individual components of a design for Flash animation. I'm trying to apply a layer of #7C6844 with the color effect at 56% opacity and a layer of #999999 with the color burn effect at 12% opacity to the foreground image which has a transparent background. This task has proved to be rather impossible for me, but it seems like there should be a way to do it. I would use the wand tool > select inverse and apply the colors over top that way, but the foreground image has a lot of leaves and branches, so that method would be extremely tedious.

Is there a way I can select the entire image as a whole and leave out the background?

I'll attach the image and the desired result to further assist.

After Effects :: 3d Camera Tracker Applying Key Frames To Camera And Not Null Object?

May 31, 2013

I don't know how to phrase it correctly but the 3d camera tracker inside of After Effects will only apply key frames to the null object. This causes the footage to rotate around itself.

Photoshop Elements :: Adding Text And Applying Various Effects With The Text

Dec 17, 2013

I think I may have made a big error.  While adding text and applying (experimenting) various "Effects" with the text, I used the garbage can icon to remove the "Effect", thinking it is going to remove the 'Effect" from the text, until I realized I had to remove the "Effect" with the edit button, not the garbage can.  Have I now permanently removed the various "Effects" permanently or just off the screen?  How do I regain them back onto the menu column?  How many "Effects" should be visible in order to have the complete set?  This was my first experiment with the lettering effects and hope I haven't lost them forever.

After Effects :: Crashes When Opening Project

May 2, 2013

I was working on a project just fine until when I went to open it this morning. When I open it, AE crashes with either this message:
OR this message: 

and finally ends with a message like this:
There are no special plugins being utilized in the project I am working in, only several Illustrator files. I'm not sure how dynamic link has anything to do with this because i'm not using it with Premiere Pro. All I know is that the project worked fine when I closed it last night, and now this is happening. It's a paid job as well, so it's very important that I can open it again.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling CS6 and my video card drivers. Just to be clear, AE opens just fine, it's only opening this specific project that gives the crash.

After Effects :: Crashes At A Random Frame?

May 26, 2013

I'm experiencing some problems with the rendering of some videos on AE CS4. I haven't had this problem before.
When i first installed After Effects a few months ago, i tried to render videos and AE rendered them beautifully, without a single issue. After a while(some months) it started crashing in certain points of the videos, and after a while it couldn't render more than 300 frames(after 300 or less frames it crashed).
I tried all the solutions available in this site and other sites, but none of them worked. I suspected that my computer had became slower over time and assumed that that was the problem, so I decided to reformat(myself) it as soon as possible.
I thought i fixed the problem by formatting my PC. When i tried to render the same video , it couldn't go beyond 200 frames .how is it possible  that before, AE could render the same video without crashing even once , and now (even after formatting) it can't go beyond 200 frames.
Detail: when AE renders the video, it begins very fast and  just crashes at a random frame ( not at the same frame every time)

I rendered an AVI(MPEG4) in Key-shot 4 that is only 6 seconds long.When I import (or drag and drop) that file into AE it freezes and then crashes. I am not sure what's going on. I tried importing other AVIs, and they seem to be working just fine!..
Then i tried importing the FLV of the same AVI video I rendered with keyshot, it says my file is damaged or corrupted. but i can playback the FLV file no problem.I am on windows 7 64bit right now, 8GB of ram, Intel i7 at 3.4GHz, NVDIA GeForace GT 640.

After Effects :: Can't Import ProRes / Animation / QuickTime Pro Crashes

Aug 9, 2013

I recently upgraded to Mountain Lion form SL. Suddenly AE can't import lot of .movs.I am almost sure this is a compatibility between the Quicktime components nor the location of them.
For instance, some H264 files are imported fine, as Mp4 files as well. Pro Res, PNG, even Animation! Gives me the "this Moov is unsuported or damaged"I removed the AE pref., chequed my disk permissions, and nothing. Also, i can't see Adobe QT32 Server in the Activity Monitor, but i think this is not a problem because other quicktime files are imported ok.I don't have any firewall trying to break the communication between AE and QT. I tried to opend the files in Premiere, and Media Encode and gives the same errors..I have removed Xvid, Perian. From Quicktime Pro, i have removed all third party component in Libray/Quicktime and in System/Library/quicktime and nothing. Also I'm lost WHERE the final qt components go:

3-HD/System/Library/Quicktime (empty, i don't know why)
The QT codecs: Quicktime pro opens certain files and when i tried to export, it crashes. Quicktime X Plays the files normally, even Prores and even the Finder Preview sees them.this is the QT report:

Process:     QuickTime Player 7 [1638]Path:        /Applications/Utilities/QuickTime Player Player 7Identifier:     7.6.6 (7.6.6)Build Info:  QuickTimePlayer-17090000~1Code Type:   X86 (Native)Parent Process:  launchd [307]

Illustrator :: Tints In CC Not Applying

Jul 17, 2013

If I draw a shape and select the fill color from one of my swatches, this applies the color OK.  Then if I want to change the fill color to a tint of the swatch, what I used to do in Illustrator 5.5 was go to the 'Color Guide' tab and choose a tint.  This tint was then applied to the shape.  If I do the same in Illustrator CC, I can select the tint, but it does not get applied to the shape, the shape remains with its original fill color. I use tints of our company colors a lot, so I need this to work!
